If you or someone you know has access to a large format printer (formerly known as plotters, but now they are just bubblejet printers that print on rolls), you can download US charts using Maptech software mentioned above. You download the charts from the listed sites and print them into PDF's. Then you can print them out full scale on the printer.
If you have any friends who are engineers or architects or work for them, you might be able to get use of the machine. Even with buying my own paper and ink (to stay in the good graces of my company while I use their equipment) I end up paying about $1-2 per chart, plus my time, of course.
If you look around in the internet, you can find old DMA charts for global coverage, at least for small scale charts, which would cut down on what you would actually have to buy.
